Archives For Nintendo

You knew it would happen eventually.  After all of the turtles that Mario has stomped on and all of the flowers that he has burned up, he was bound to piss off somebody eventually.  Personally, I figured it would be PETA or Greenpeace or somebody like that, but apparently it is the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles that have taken offense to his turtle kicking ways.

This hilarious piece of Super Mario and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle art was created by DeviantART user JPZILLA.

Of course this begs the question, who would win in a fight, Raphael from the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles or Mario from the Super Mario Bros games?  Let us know who you think would win in the comments below!

Have you ever wondered where all that money goes when you buy a new video game?  Well, I have a chart that explains where the money goes for today’s games, but I will save that for another day and show you one for SNES games from the 1990s instead.

Apparently these numbers on who takes what percentage of the money from a SNES game come out of the UK so for those in the US that don’t know what VAT is, it is a consumer tax.  However, I am sure that this chart looks pretty close to what it was in other areas of the world that don’t have a VAT.

The one thing that I find to be a little sad is just how little money actually went to the developers.  It seems rather unfair that Nintendo ran away with a third of the cost of each game and retailers just slightly less than that while the developers didn’t even get 5%.  I would expect that kind of behavior out of the RIAA, but Nintendo?!

Share your thoughts on these numbers in the comments below!

Maybe its because I have always been so good at the game that nobody can even come close to beating me (I welcome all challengers!), but the classic GoldenEye for the Nintendo 64 is still one of my all time favorite games.  There is just something enjoyable about shooting a guy in the butt and having him jump while grabbing the wound.

Anyway, for those that are also huge fans of the FPS classic GoldenEye, I thought you might want to join me in buying this awesome GoldenEye inspired Most Deadly shirt from BustedTees for just $20.  This shirt features the health meter from the GoldenEye watch with the recognition of “most deadly” in the center (the perfect description for my 007 skills).

If are looking to brag about your skills on a game from 1997 (like I do), this is the perfect way to do it!

Cupcakes aren’t the huge thing around here like they are in many parts of the country so I don’t get to have them very often, but I still love them!  However, the worst part about not living in cupcake country is that I never get to eat any awesome cupcakes like this amazing Bowser cupcake!

This amazingly detailed Bowser cupcake was made by Cake-ology and it is one of the coolest cupcakes I have ever seen!  The one thing that makes this cupcake unique is that Bowser is so big that this is actually TWO cupcakes!  I’m not sure how you would best eat two cupcakes at once but I would definitely be willing to give it a shot if I had the opportunity!

I have to admit, I do tend to long for the simpler days of the consoles I grew up with like the NES and the SNES.  I miss the days where consoles did one thing and one thing only, play video games!  Well, it seems that one Super Nintendo fan seems to agree with me in my desire for the simpler times to return.

I’m not sure who the awesome gamer is that is sporting this fantastic SNES tattoo, but it was inked by Josh Barg at Dixie Tattoo Co. in Waterford, Michigan.  This tattoo looks so good that I am very tempted to break out my SNES this weekend and enjoy the days of 16-bit gaming again instead of just firing up one of my emulators that I normally use to relive the old days.

It has been quite a while since I have posted any geeky bars of soap, so when I saw this, I knew it had to be posted!  For the Legend of Zelda fans who like to stay clean, now you can stay clean with this awesome Legend of Zelda heart piece container soap!

Etsy seller SmallThingsForSale is selling this amazing Legend of Zelda heart piece container bar of soap for just $2 (+$4 shipping).  For those curious, this Legend of Zelda heart piece container soap is made from clear glycerin mp base (coconut oil, palm oil, safflower oil, glycerin, purified water, sodium hydroxide, sorbitol, sorbitan oleate, soy bean protein) and cosmetic grade colorant.

As a huge Legend of Zelda fan, I would say this is definitely one of the coolest soap ideas I have ever seen!  This would go great with the NES controller soap I posted in the past.
